Points per drive is skewed when the offense scores 40+/game most games. Stats are skewed. Like mentioned bottom line is DL talent. Clemson Bama Ohio State are always in the playoffs due to multiple NFL DLmen. OU gets there with an elite offense and look what happens. We are on par with ou’s offense this year. One thing I note is that our DL has a lot of depth which I don’t feel we’ve ever had in the Gundy era. Having depth we can show more looks and blitzes as we can sub guys and not have a 1st string/4th string type drop off
Our DLine actually doesn’t have a lot of depth...or at least not proven yet. You’ve got a solid starting unit in Murray, Antwine, Lacy. Behind them I really like Jernigan if he can put on 10-15 more pounds. Collin Clay would be a fantastic depth boost if he ends up being eligible. Beyond that, there are just some decent guys and a lot of unproven youth.
